Very helpful over the phone, we asked for a timed delivery which they said would not be a problem. Driver was on time and very friendly. Food was very nice and had great... read more

Sorry to say did not meet expectations, We were told it was a good meal but really it was not that good. Rice was very stodgy, Spare ribs were very naked. Crispy chicken was chewy. We will not be using again. Only good thing about it was delivery man very polite.

During quieter periods this is a fantastic takeaway but really not so much during their busy periods. Delivery and prep times have always been very good and much faster than collecting.

When visiting family in Taunton we opted to visit the Canton restaurant. We had assumed with a name like the Canton they would serve a full Chinese menu. Just how wrong could we be. The restaurant had changed name and the majority of food served is Indian. We decided to find a restaurant which lived up to its name, as... More

This place has changed hands and I tried it this past Sunday. The food was ready when I arrived and was still hot when I arrived back home. I had the beef with ginger and spring onions on egg fried rice. The dish was perfectly cooked and tasted of just the right amount of ginger. The Won Ton Soup was... More

Takeaway menu is very expensive....curries do not come with rice or chips included like other places and curry alone more expensive than everywhere else. Chicken very rubbery. The restaurant however is better but still expensive.

We stopped on impulse for New Years Eve. Very good food. Only one criticism, the food did not stay hot enough without hot plates on the table!

Very pleasant welcome and we were served by a very helpful and friendly waitress called Jordan. Food was excellent, cooked well and very tasty. Only negative is there isn't much atmosphere however food and staff make up for it.
